five under par and as a one-shot lead over a handful of golfers. a dog in getting blamed for eating his owners tickets to the highly coveted masters. >> the seattle man was determined and when we say determined, we mean it, to get those tickets back. so he said his dog hydrogen peroxide, that made her sick, and up came the ticket pieces, he pieced them together and lucky for him tournament organizers agreed to reissue new tickets. can you imagine being the ticket taker taking those? >> they gave him new tickets, but it is almost a birthright to get into that place understand why he went to extreme measures to get those digested tickets back up. and what a story. >> san fransisco immune system marks its 100th birthday. people may end up paying for some it parking to help them make ends meet. >> phil matier joins us live
from cafe roma with ahead of muni, as well. gentlemen. and the mayor. take it away. >> how're you doing? exactly, two legends in unique, the guy that runs it now and the guy that said he could fix it in 100 days. >> my administration never said that. >> you did? i have to say that muni is one of those things that everyone in san fransisco takes and likes and complains about. you took the job just a little while ago. any second thoughts? >> not at all, i have the best job in san francisco. people love me and people love to hate me. people enjoy a sometimes some laughs at a news expense. but to be a part of one of the best transportation systems in the world, i cannot think of a better way to spend my career. >> but right now in order to balance your deficit ridden budget which many always seems
to be running in the red, you are proposing something very controversial. he will increase parking tickets and to what, $70? making them on par or even passed in york. and will start charging people for parking on sunday? that is not boys making the most popular guy around town. >> i did not take the job to be popular, i took the job to meet the transportation system work and make it rational. and i think that first if we want to have a world-class transportation system we need to resource it, we need to put the right funding in place for it. what this budget represents and one of the reasons why we had a gap to close is because i am adding a lot of resources to the minutes of the system. primarily in the new system but also the people that work on the streets, the people that pink stripes, who fixed the traffic signals. >> at the same time you're doing that and raising prices, you're sitting there talking about giving it away free to people under 17 which will cost millions? how does that make sense?
>> so, prices that we're raising first of all parts car to break it down a little bit, the state is imposing surcharges on parking tickets. so we do not feel that it is appropriate for all of us to pay that cost. we have made it much easier for people to avoid getting parking tickets, easier to find parking and pay for parking. >> the bottom line is that if you are raising fees and giving away muni for free, it does not balance out? >> will not largely giving away muni for free. to the extent we're doing it in the way i am proposing it, in a way that the costs are covered because we're doing it contingent on receiving funds from the region that we otherwise would not have. that is how we get around that. >> is there any possibility in whatever time span it takes, for me in the ultimately to be free? >> totally free? >> i don't think so.
mayor gavin newsom sponsored a study of that question. i do not know, five years ago. and i think that no matter how people looked at it they could not find a way to do so but what i would like to move towards and what this whole use free muni for use issue has brought forth to me, is that right now we provide discounts to people based on age, not based on income. so we have a situation now where wealthy seniors or wealthy young people pay less than low-income adults to ride public transit. so i think that in the long term, making the free for low- income people might be something that we can do. >> what he is proposing, you want wealthier older people that write me to pay more? >> i want people to pay according to their ability to pay. >> he wants you to pay more! we have to go. >> i want me to be free. i think the benefits from uni
